  • New Superintendent Candidate Profile

    Dr. Elizabeth Osga, a consultant from New England School Development Council (NESDEC) facilitated focus group meetings representing parents, community members, administrators, faculty and staff and conducted multiple individual interviews of key stakeholders.  In addition, an online survey containing the same questions was made available.  The information gathered was used to detail the qualities, characteristics, skills, knowledge and experience desired in a new Superintendent of Schools and to identify the pressing challenges ahead of him or her.  Working closely with Dr. Osga, the Board of Education search committee reviewed and analyzed the information which was used to develop the Successful Candidate Profile which is attached.  This profile will be used to guide the interview and selection process for the search of our new Superintendent.

Welcome to Preston Public Schools!

Enrolling over 400 students, Preston Public Schools comprises Preston Veterans’ Memorial School (PK-5) and Preston Plains Middle School (6-8). Upon completion of the eighth grade program, Preston students have the option of attending Norwich Free Academy (Designated High School), Ledyard High School, Ledyard Agri-Science High School, Grasso Vocational Technical High School, Norwich Vocational-Technical School, New London Science and Technology High School, or Marine Science High School.

As a school district, we are committed throughout our organization to ensuring that children receive an excellent education and enjoy their experience in Preston. Ideal teacher-student ratios in conjunction with a focused academic program accompanied by appropriate support services are designed to guarantee that every child has a successful experience.

We also place a great deal of emphasis on developing a strong school-home partnership. Parents are welcome in our schools and play an active role as evidenced by the presence of parent volunteers and two active parent-teacher organizations. Our efforts always pay dividends and complement our personal commitment to the 4 C’s – communication, coordination, cooperation, and collaboration.

As the district’s superintendent, I am also conscious of the importance of creating goals that guide our efforts. Toward that end, the following goals for the 2016-2017 school year provide a perspective on what we expect to accomplish this year. You may also find the accompanying recapitulation of previous year's goals of interest as well.

In conclusion, I am delighted that you chose to visit our webpage and take a tour. Upon completion of the tour, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like further information about Preston Public Schools.

 

John J. Welch, Superintendent
